Faucet repair


When water starts squirting from the faucet, it's often a sign that it's time to replace the faucet filter. Fortunately, this is a simple task you can do yourself, without the need to call a plumber.


Here is a detailed guide on how to do it in just a few steps:

  1. Close the water - first of all, close the valve to prevent uncontrolled spraying of water while changing the filter.

  2. Remove the old cover - unbutton or unscrew the cover that holds the old filter in place. This can usually be done by hand, but if necessary, use the appropriate tool.

  1. Remove the old filter - once the cover is removed, the old filter is visible. Remove it from the faucet and set it aside.

  1. Instead of the old filter, put a new one - place the new filter in the same place where the old one was.
    (If the old filter is not broken but is just full of limescale, you can clean it by putting the filter in a glass of vinegar for a few hours, best overnight. In the morning rinse it with water, check if the limescale is gone and put it back in its old place.)*

  2. Replace the O-ring - put the O-ring back to its place and secure it to the faucet. Make sure all parts are securely attached.

  3. Re-open the water - when all parts are securely fastened, open the water valve and check if the filter installation is successful.

Replacing a faucet filter should be a simple and quick task that you can do by yourself. However, if you don't want to take any risks, you can always just request a service provider on the Postaj app and a plumber will solve your problems.‍

Good luck! :)
